Introduction The Georgia Department of Education School Nutrition Program, as part of the Shake It Up in School Nutrition Initiative, held its second annual Farm to School Student Chef Competition in March 2018. Shake It Up, founded in partnership with the Georgia State Board of Education and Georgia State School Superintendent, was created to enhance the flavor of school meals and improve the perception of Georgia School Nutrition Programs. There are three key pillars: 1) Tasty Meals, 2) Friendly Cafeterias, and 3) Happy Schools. The initiative connects with students through the Student Chef Competition. The Student Chef Competition consisted of a Recipe Contest and Cooking Competition. Teams competed to develop a nutritious, student-friendly recipe that includes local foods and is easily incorporated into the school food service program. Thirty-five recipes were received from teams across the state. Recipes were reviewed and judged on whether they met the National School Lunch Program meal pattern and nutrition standards for grades 9-12, incorporation of local ingredients, use of culinary skills, ease of use by the school food service operation, recipe presentation, recipe description, and creativity. Seven recipes met the criteria and these finalists competed in the cooking competition. Finalists • • • • • • •
Bowl’d Farm Fresh Burrito Bowl Team: Bowl’d and Fresh, Maxwell High School of Technology, Gwinnett County Public Schools Chicken Quesadilla Team: TKK, Putnam County High School, Putnam County Schools Sautéed Chicken Wrap Team: 2 Chicks and Jared, Jackson County Comprehensive High School, Jackson County Schools Kale and Kraisin Salad Team: Baldwin County Divas, Baldwin High School, Baldwin County Schools Southwestern Chicken and Mexican Rice with Georgia Peach Salsa Team: Shamrocking Chefs, Dublin High School, Dublin City Schools Quinoa Black Bean Salad Team: Pepperell High Dragons, Pepperell High School, Floyd County Schools Creamy Chicken Chowder with Brown Rice Team: Naturally Newton, Newton College and Career Academy, Newton County Schools
The Cooking Competition allowed students to prepare and present their dishes to a panel of three judges. During food preparation, student teams were judged on sanitation and food safety. The judges scored each team on a brief presentation of their dish, overall appeal, appearance, execution, and taste. Qualifying recipes are included in this cookbook. Each recipe includes nutrition information per serving. Georgia grown items in each recipe are indicated by the symbol next to the ingredient.
We hope these studentsâ€™ culinary creativity inspires you to Shake It Up!

Instructions continued: 10. In a small skillet, stir fry the corn until it is roasted and has burnt marks on the kernels. 11. Add the black beans, tomatoes, onions, and chopped jalapeños to the roasted corn and until warmed through. Add the corn mixture to the rice and stir. 12.

Options for Versatility: The chicken can be diced or sliced into strips, combined with the rice mixture, and placed into a spinach tortilla or lettuce leaf to form a wrap. The Georgia Peach Salsa can then be added to the wrap. The chicken and rice mixture can also be placed atop a bed of chilled greens to produce an entrée salad. Furthermore, the dish can be made into a nacho dish by adding whole grain tortilla chips underneath or can be plated with mini soft tortillas for a “build your own fajita” plate. For more options, this recipe was tested with chopped pineapples (in place of the peaches) and received positive reviews from our taste testing panel. School Nutrition Tips: If time is an issue, consider using the parboiled USDA brown rice. This meal contains some of all components except milk. Each serving provides 2 ounces meat/meat alternate, 2 ounces grain, 1/3 cup fruit, 1 3/8 cups vegetables (including ¼ cup starchy, ¼ cup legumes, ¼ cup red/orange, and 5/8 cup other vegetables). If OVS, SNP staff can serve with at least ½ - 1 cup of fruit and 8 fluid ounces of 1% or fat free unflavored milk to make a fully reimbursable meal. Notes: 1. Three cups of USDA pepper and onion blend may be used in place of fresh onion and bell pepper. 2. When peaches are out of season, substitute 30 oz. peach slices, canned in extra light syrup. 3. One cup of USDA pepper and onion blend may be used in place of fresh onion and bell pepper.
